7:04 am
major accidents or stalled vehicles in the area. let's look at the commute on interstate 880. this traffic here is not all that bad. as a matter of fact, traffic northbound 880 moving along very nicely as you drive through the area. there are no major problems as you drive up to downtown oakland. five-minute drive time from the downtown oakland exit up to the -- or down to the airport. northbound 87 near the ail ma dond -- almaden expressway, there was a crash there. there was also a crash at tully. kirker pass road closed between pittsburg and concord. they are repairing a power line damaged in a fire last night. we have a lot of e-mails. so highway 4 is extra slow. people heard about this and coming over to concord on highway 4 is going to take you a while. back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. new this morning -- neighbors are describing a
7:05 am
chaotic scene after a terrifying high speed crash in richmond. one woman died in an accident on the richmond parkway that triggered a power outage in the area. alex savidge has been at the crash seen since 4:30. he -- seen since 4:30 he -- scene since 4:30 he has new information. >> reporter: good morning. one neighbor is certain it was a street race that led up to the crash. he's calling on police to step up patrols along richmond parkway where he says the dangerous races are far too common. last night, it was a young woman driving in a car killed when she slammed into a power pole. this crash knocked out power to hundreds of people in the area. it was at about 9:30 last night on girard boulevard, also known as richmond parkway, south of barrett avenue. the woman who was behind the wheel of a ford mustang died here at the scene. richmond police have not said if they believe any other cars were involved here.
7:06 am
but a witness who didn't want to be identified said he saw several other cars stopped in the middle of the road following the impact. there was one man who was simply frantic. >> guy was screaming help! help! baby, i'm sorry. i'm sorry. i didn't mean to. we ran to the car to try to help. couldn't do nothing. it was so crumpled up. but you could hear the girl screaming saying help me! help me! >> reporter: neighbors say they wanted to help the young victim inside the young car but they couldn't pry the door open. on top of that, the car appeared to be on fire. so the people backed away at that point. while witnesses said they saw several cars drive off before officers arrived here, police have not said if they believe racing was involved. i reached out to investigators and we're still waiting to hear back. the accident led to the widespread power outage. more than 700 homes were in the
7:07 am
dark for most of the night. power has since been restored by pg&e. live in richmond, alex savidge, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. 7:06. with this week's heat wave, firefighters are on high alert. crews in richmond were called to a small grass fire early this morning. it began shortly after 2:30 a.m. along 80 near cutting boulevard. several engines responded. firefighters say it began at a homeless camp in a field less than an acre burned. right now, it's not clear if anyone was hurt. firefighters are urmging everyone to -- urging everyone to use caution, especially during the heat wave with dry brush providing fuel for flames. the homeless man accused of starting the fire that destroyed a former san jose studio is due back in court this morning. he faces felony arson and burglary charges for last month's fire at the former knt building on park road. prosecutors say witnesses started him spot the fire by
7:08 am
pouring liquid on a mattress. dozens of homeless people who were living in the abandoned building managed to escape. 7:07. as you heard sal say, kirker pass road in contra costa county has been shut down again following a crash and fire. traffic was really backed up for miles yesterday after a car knocked down a power pole on kirker pass road near the concord/pittsburg border. this happened about 5:30 yesterday afternoon. the crews shut down the road overnight to fix the pole and also to pick up the downed power lines. they had to do more repark work a short time ago which forced the road to be closed. stay tuned. sal will tell you what's happening on kirker pass road right now coming up. city leaders in palo alto say it was all just a misunderstanding. a set of mysterious cameras were installed and for a while nobody knew what they were
7:09 am
really used for. brian flores is in palo alto now and, brian, you have an explanation. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dave. yeah, even city leaders coming out saying they did not properly inform residents about why the cameras were popping up. as you take a look, this is one of them, off stanford evening. this morning, the mystery has been solved. the cameras are being used to gather bicycle and pedestrian rider. city leaders say the cameras are more accurate than some of the rubber tube cameras on the street. this is part of the bicycle boulevard program which will improve street conditions. it's a $25 million project. the problem here was the cameras were installed without any previous washing or explanation -- warning or explanation to residents. that didn't sit well with a homeowner who said a camera was installed in front of the home. he complained to the city. and the city during a public
7:10 am
hearing recognized that it needed to do a better job. >> i do think it's unfortunate, though, that we did not get this news out in advance and i think we had a few surprising situations with folks, sort of surprised by these cameras being put up. we'll probably do more extensive outreach. >> reporter: the city also tells the mercury news that at least 25 cameras are installed throughout the city but they say they don't know exactly where they r the reason, it hired -- the reason, it hired third-party consultants to pick the locations and install the cameras and the city leaders say they don't know where they are until they are installed. back out here live, the raw video is never kept and they will only get the count until the cameras are done being used. mum, we'll tell you when -- coming up, we'll tell you when that is and why one homeowner
